Services:
Individual and Couples therapy

 

Online therapy: I offer professional and confidential telehealth services, so you can access psychological care from your home, using only a computer or smartphone connected to the Internet.​ Online appointments are a great option for individuals and couples who want to avoid travel time and/or prefer accessing support from their homes.

​In-person therapy: For those seeking privacy and a safe space for in-person therapy, I offer face-to-face appointments every Thursday in a therapy room in Surry Hills, just a 3-minute walk from Central Station.

Feel free to reach out for appointment availability through our Enquiry form.

Individual therapy

I’m passionate about supporting individuals facing challenges in their relationships, whether romantic or non-romantic. I can help with issues such as intimacy, avoidance or excessive criticism, unhealthy dating patterns and dating anxiety, breakups, boundary issues, assertiveness and communication.

I have extensive experience helping individuals with anxiety, stress, depression or low mood, chronic and complex health conditions and chronic pain, adjustment disorder, and women’s health issues.

I have a particular interest in helping individuals who experience poor self-esteem/self-confidence, co-dependency, excessive self-criticism, imposter syndrome, procrastination and lack of motivation, unhealthy lifestyles, cultural, ethnic, and sexual identity concerns, excessive shyness, grief and loss, career, life transitions, and life and career dissatisfaction.

My goal is to empower individuals to overcome challenges and build resilience.

Nervous about therapy?

Feeling a bit nervous about starting therapy is perfectly normal.

 

I strive to create a safe and comfortable atmosphere for my clients right from their first contact with me.

 

Ensuring that you are confident in choosing the right therapist for your needs is crucial to me. That's why I offer a complimentary 15-minute consultation.

 

This allows you to determine if I'm the right fit for you without any obligation to commit to therapy. I want to ensure that your therapeutic journey starts with trust and ease.

Your therapy journey

Let's kickstart your therapy journey by diving into your expectations, what you feel you need support with, any worries or questions on your mind, and getting comfy with the whole therapy process.

To start off, I'll lead the conversation, looking into your situation, any specific challenges you're facing, and the goals you have in mind.

Everyone has their unique story, challenges, and goals. I'm here to meet you where you are, and collaborate with you on overcoming the issues you want to tackle, working towards the outcomes you're aiming for.

Couples therapy

I am dedicated to helping couples rediscover their connection so they can build rewarding relationships that support their mental, emotional and physical health. 

 

I help couples strengthen their relationship and navigate conflicts, communication problems, cultural and personal differences, lack of connection, trust issues, infidelity, sexual concerns, external stressors such as work and extended family dynamics, pregnancy and parenting, and support of a partner with health/mental health issues.

 

I welcome the opportunity to support both opposite-sex and same-sex couples on their journeys to better communication and deeper understanding, to help them to develop a more secure attachment and more fulfilling relationship.

My couples therapy style

​I use the evidence-based Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples method, developed by Dr Sue Johnson and supported by over 30 years of research. This short-term (8-20 sessions) attachment-based approach has been shown to be effective in improving relationships.

What to expect

At RISE, a couple's therapy journey has three stages.

 

First, we explore strategies to tackle de-escalating conflicts.

 

Next, we focus on restructuring interactions, learning to turn toward each other, openly discuss needs, and be more responsive.

 

The third and final step is consolidation. Here, I'll guide you in recognising past negative patterns and show how you've changed them, setting the foundation for future positive conversations.
